SLOW-COOKED PORK RIB ROLL | THE RIB MAN | £7

BRICK LANE E1 | UPTON PARK E6

holy f*ck yes

holy f*ck yes

Nothing embodies the pure essence of street food more than The Rib Man. From the product to the man himself (Mark to friends), everything about this setup is the genuine thing.

You come to The Rib Man for one thing and one thing only; the now iconic rib roll. A crusty bun overflowing with slow-cooked and flaking pork rib meat. It is a thing to behold.

If you want the full experience, you must get it with the Holy F*ck sauce - it'll knock your socks off. Mark also bottles his now famous chilli sauce and sells it both on the store and online, should you wish to spice up your meals with some expletive heat at home.
